Fire: When you first go into your hotel room, take a moment to look back out into the corridor and note where the fire exit is.

Before your excursion starts, discuss where to meet if you get lost or separated. The last place you were together might be a good option.

When traveling with children, always prepare in advance with them whom they should ask for help, if separated, or where to meet. Also, for young children, make each of them a card with their name, where they are staying, contact phone number, parents' names, medications they are taking, allergies, and what to do if lost. Then, the child should be told to give the card only to a police officer.

If you are concerned about pickpockets, wrap a thick rubberband around your wallet. This will ensure that you will feel the friction of the rubberband against slacks if your pocket is picked.
